Let's Hear It For the Boys! ~Contentment

Alternative title: The Longest Slip 'n Slide Ever

There is a lot of cool backyard water stuff to be had out there.  

Not to mention neighborhood pools and water parks to visit.

This year, though, we are going the simple route, with a humongously long piece of painter's plastic and a sprinkler:
And although this is not necessarily a trait unique to boys, I am super proud of my boys for how easy-to-please they tend to be.  

They were as happy about their cheap and homemade slip and slide as they would have been with the coolest waterworks on walmart's shelves.
Except maybe Tyler.  Have you spied him in these pictures yet?  That is where he spent the entire playtime, safely out of reach of water and brothers.

(Incidentally, our crazy dog spent the entire time hiding under the shed.  Now I know what to do if I want some peaceful time in the backyard!)
My favorite part of all, though?  The collective -and quite enthusiastic- cheer that went up when Daddy came out in his swim shorts. 

Wish I could bottle that boy-love for Daddy to open up and savor when they're grown!

Is Tyler that little red speck on the slide? Give him a day or two--he'll be all about it! And probably Triscuit too.
